How-to change default privacy settings when creating a new issue related room? Any chance to put "private" as default setting?

Hi, 

I simply want to avoid that I have to put every room manually on "private", since not everybody who's using HipChat at our company should have Access to the so far open rooms regarding specific projects. It would save me a lot of time, if there is a chance to change the Default setting from "open" to "private" when creating a new room out of JIRA. Any Ideas? Thanks in advance

Are you creating rooms when creating new JIRA projects or dedicated rooms for specific issues (like in the screenshot) ?

Hi Anatoli, 

thanks for your reply. Correct, the screenshot shows exactly my "problem". 

I agree, there should either be a way to default to private, or you should be able to choose when you create the room. I think being able to default to private makes more sense. This is becoming a deal breaker in my organization.

Is there a improvement ticket already opened on this? If so, I'd vote for it.
